The Headmistress of OLA Senior High School in Ho, Madam Regina Coffie has cautioned parents to desist from abusing staff for taking disciplinary actions against their wards, who misconduct themselves in school.
According to her, some parents call staff members on phone or rush to school to confront and verbally abuse authorities whenever punitive actions are meted out to wards for insubordination.
This, she noted, was breeding further indiscipline among the young girls, some of whom show gross disrespect towards their teachers.
The Headmistress who was addressing a recent Parents-teachers Association (PTA) meeting at the school, thus, threatened to send home students whose parents would continue to abuse staff members in that regard.
‘Henceforth, if any parent comes here to abuse us because your ward has been disciplined, I will make sure, you go home with her,’ she warned, adding that, ‘We need not to over pamper our future women, so help us to mould your wards into responsible citizens.’
Touching on the implementation of the double track system under the free SHS programme, madam Coffie noted that, the management was doing its best to provide the best of education to the students in spite of the teething challenges confronting the smooth running of the of the government’s flagship policy.
She nonetheless, assured parents that, the school was in touch with the education authorities to address some of the challenges, including posting more teachers to the school to handle the double track students.
Meanwhile, the PTA has commissioned a 200kva power plant for the school.
The generator, which cost over Ghs375,000, according to the PTA chairman, Mr. Ferg Afedo, would ensure constant electricity supply in the school and enhance security of studnets during power outages at night.
